Art therapy offers a rich range of life enhancing and strengthening opportunities for individuals, families and communities. Art-based approaches to healing foster non-verbal modes of communication to express emotional difficulties and diverse life-world experiences in ways that spoken language cannot. Art therapists assist individuals and groups of people in exploring forms in which visual imagery can nurture significant insights related to the psychological issues they may face and develop new ways of understanding self and others. We need art therapy researchers, scholars and practitioners to lead the development of personal and social uses of art-related health and therapeutically oriented practices and processes in the 21st century.

The MA in Creative Arts Therapies, Art Therapy option, provides you with an opportunity to combine your passion for art and therapeutic work. Our distinguished faculty members have a wealth of theory and practical experience as scholars, researchers and registered art therapists. They will assist you to develop deep and wide reaching applications of the interventions, research, and clinical applications of art therapy.

Benefit from two eight-month-long practicums where you will work directly with clients in conjunction with an on-site supervisor, as well as your departmental supervisor. Montreal provides a myriad of local sites to carry out your practicum, including the Centre for the Arts in Human Development and the Art Hives network connected to Concordia University. Placement possibilities include hospitals and health care institutions, community centres, geriatric facilities, and schools.

The Art Therapy option is a professional program approved by the Canadian Art Therapy Association and the American Art Therapy Association. You will graduate from our program having met these association’s educational requirements to become a professional Art Therapist. Graduates are also eligible to become professional members of the Quebec Art Therapy Association or of their provincial art therapy association. Additionally, graduates can apply for the Canadian Certified Counsellor designation offered through the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
